I came across this item in the Albert Lowe Museum’s kitchen building, and it’s got me stumped. Turns out nobody knows exactly what it is… Do you?

Can you help identify this find from Green Turtle Cay's Albert Lowe Museum?

Here are a few more photographs from different angles… If you know what it is, please comment below.

(UPDATE: Mystery solved!)

    It is a salt pig, used to keep salt dry and to hand in the kitchen.

    Amanda, the first thing that jumped to mind is that it was used as a watering can; of the type that were popular when I was a child; they were made of zinc, and this is a ceramic version thereof. But I say all that tongue in cheek, because I am certain that is NOT what it was. Sadly, I have no idea.

    I believe it may well be a Victorian era bed warmer, the precursor of the hot water bottle. One filled it with hot water and placed a cork plug in it, placed it between the sheets, and Hey Presto – warm sheets! This invention was a great step forwards on the original bed warmers, which resembled large copper frying pans with lids and with long wooden handles, into which one placed hot coals and they did the same job, but much more messily. Progress!

    I look forward to any other suggestions,
